Captured as a boy when Herra invaded his homeland, Micah realizes that finding his way to freedom in Alekia with his savior and lover Eli was the easier task. They now hide among the Alekites, but battle with Herra looms. With Eli’s love, Micah must come to terms with his status as a noble and his mother's birthright of witch's blood inside him. The two also face the father Micah cannot forgive and Eli's family, who very much want Eli back as firstborn heir rather than the lowly slave who rescued the king's favorite son. When court intrigues stir and Herran armies march to war, Micah and Eli must make their stand...or fall as plunder. WARNING: This book contains graphic sex and violent content.
